The MIP Tubular Turning Slide Sheets are made from a Transtex, a specially developed fabric that is silicone coated on both sides to provide a slick, low friction finish for easy patient movement and turning. The durable fabric is suitable for hospital laundering using standard hospital laundry guidelines HSG(95)18.
- Slide sheets are not intended for lifting, and all patient manoeuvers should be accomplished without lifting.
- Tubular Slide Sheets are formed by sewing the fabric into a continuous tube with a double sewn low profile seam that reduces potential tissue viability issues whilst adding strength and durability.
- A web hanging loop is provided to allow the tube to be kept with the patient at all times.
For all repositioning and manual handling solutions it is recommended to seek advice / approval from a manual handling expert.
